Statewide Poll Shows Support for Smoke-Free Law

A poll released today (WED) shows that 77 percent of Kansas voters are in favor of the state’s new smoke-free law. The law, which took effect in July, prohibits smoking in most public places. In addition to finding broad support for the law, pollster Glen Bolger says that 59 percent of voters responded that they would be less likely to support a candidate who wants to repeal it.

The poll was paid for by several organizations that lobbied for the law and are now gearing up to fight an expected effort to repeal it.
They hired Bolger – who does polling for several Republican members of Congress – to bolster the credibility of the survey results among conservative Republicans in Kansas.
